The House is a startup institute built for Berkeley, and home to Berkeley’s founders. We help build foundations for great businesses with a support platform providing founders at all stages with what they need, when they need it. We’re working with exceptional founders to build the next generation of Berkeley’s top startups.
OUR TEAM HAS BEEN BUILDING GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATIONS TO SUPPORT BERKELEY ENTREPRENEURS AND STARTUPS FOR THE LAST SIX YEARS – first as students and now full-time.
When we first arrived on campus as students, we began searching for resources and entrepreneurs who could share their own experiences, but we couldn’t find a community or set of resources to plug into. We decided to band together with other aspiring student entrepreneurs and build the resources and community we wish existed.
BY THE TIME WE GRADUATED, OUR PROGRAMS SPARKED OVER 50 STARTUPS THAT RAISED OVER 50 MILLION IN FUNDING and engaged thousands of students via our community and events ecosystem. This was the start of a multi-year, cross-organization endeavor that eventually spawned The House.
